For Services and Resources in French Polynesia

The Tahiti Cruisers Guide is brought to you by Julien Desmont from Xperimental and Chuck Houlihan from Jacaranda. Starting as an idea based on the very successful Panama City Cruisers guide, it has evolved into 200+ pages of information on vendors and services throughout French Polynesia. In January 2018, we added GPS coordinates and links to Google Maps to assist in locating businesses.

Downloading the guide and GPS map coordinates will facilitate using the guide offline. The coordinates will work for either (best for Papeete) or Google Maps.

Especially thankful to John (SV Mary Ann II) and Steve (SV Ocean Star) for their huge effort in supplying a vast amount of information for the guide.

The guide is a community effort. Updates and new additions are greatly appreciated. If you find the guide useful or find something that needs updating please drop us a note at tahiticruisersguide (AT)

Planes flying into/from Papeete from other islands rarely align time-wise with international arrivals/departures. I found a small bungalow (run by an awesome Tahitian woman) about two minutes from the airport. She comes and picks up you and your luggage from the airport, takes you to her airconditioned bungalow where you can shower and re-organize (she has free Wifi too) and then she takes you and your luggage back to the airport the following day, or whenever your flight is. All this shuffling of people and luggage is included in the cost of the bungalow, which was around 100 USD for 1 night.
